NEW HAVEN, Mo. - You could not have asked for better weather for Saturday’s New Haven Hot Air Balloon Race presented by Pepsi, celebrating their 25th Anniversary as an estimated 3,000 people filled the New Haven City Park, all hoping to see the sky filled with balloons. Especially since it was 2011 when the weather last cooperated enough for the balloons to lift off.
As the balloons eventually vanished, the vast majority of people are left wondering where did they land, who won, and pondering with the question of what exactly is a Balloon Race? (Below is video footage from the end of the race.)

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo – Gov. Jay Nixon arrived in Afghanistan on Saturday (Sept. 27) as part of a delegation of four U.S. Governors that included Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Tennessee Gov. William Haslam. This is the fourth trip to Afghanistan for Gov. Nixon, who is one of the original members of the Council of Governors, formed in 2010 to address matters pertaining to the National Guard and homeland security.
On Friday (Sept. 26), the Governors were briefed at Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington DC, before flying to Ramstein Air Base in Germany.
At Ramstein on Saturday, they visited with military patients being treated at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center before traveling on to Kabul, Afghanistan.
-- It’s been two year’s since the weather has cooperated for the New Haven Balloon Race, which was back in 2011 when we flew in the Pepsi Can. Since this being the 25th Anniversary and a great look forecast for Saturday, we want to let you see the view out of a hot air balloon as well as how the winner is determined.

This year's survey showed a statewide average of 1.7 poults per hen in Missouri. That makes 2014 the third year out of the last four with strong reproductive success, which is a good sign for hunters. (Photo courtesy of MDC)
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.–Results of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s annual wild-turkey brood survey are in, and the news is good, especially in the northern half of the state.
Each summer, citizen volunteers and Conservation Department staff record the number of wild turkey hens and recently hatched turkeys they see. This year’s wild-turkey brood survey showed strong reproduction, bolstering gains posted in 2011 and 2012.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – As the heat of summer fades into the cool weather of fall, trees and shrubs around the Show-Me State transform from leaves of green to a fall-foliage color palette of golds, reds, oranges, and purples.
Leaves turn colors when two things happen. First, sugars produced by photosynthesis are trapped inside leaves by chilly - but not freezing - autumn nights. Those sugars are the building blocks for red, yellow, orange, and purple pigments. Cool nights simultaneously cause the breakdown of green pigments, allowing these other colors to show through.

Emerson is committed to developing women leaders in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), and demonstrates this commitment with the announcement of a $500,000 investment in Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s STEM programs. Their investment will provide opportunities and experiences for today’s girls so they can reach their full potential and become the leaders of tomorrow.
By the time today’s girls graduate from college, the United States will need three million additional scientists and engineers. More than 50 percent of college graduates are women, yet only 20 percent of the graduates in physics, engineering and computer science are women. Recognizing the under-representation of women in STEM careers coupled with a need for strong leadership in these fields, Girl Scouts has identified STEM as a programmatic focus area.
